Lodging is not provided by the UCAV on the University campus; however there are a number of excellent housing options available to you in Avila.

Residence Halls

If you are going to remain just a short time in our country, a good option is staying in one of the halls of residence available in Ávila. These are not connected to the University. They offer single or double rooms with or without bathroom. The cost can range from approximately 600 € per person a month to 900 € a month including all meals. The payment will be made monthly. You have to pay a deposit which won’t be returned to you if you leave the residence within three months upon your arrival.
Information about the different residences can be found in the university web page.

Individual room in a flat

The University of Avila does not own students flats. Private owners rent flats. In a flat you will generally have your own room, while sharing the kitchen, living room and bathroom with other renters or the flat owners. Finding a flat in the private rented sector is not difficult.

If you would like to acquire your flat before arriving in Avila, there are various websites that specialise in the supply and demand of shared dwellings, such as, for example:



Erasmus Students, and Students from Universities that have Bilateral Agreements with the UCAV
Students are not required to pay tuition fees at the host institution; the student may, however, be required to continue
to pay his/her normal tuition fees to the home institution during the study period abroad.

Students participating in these programs will receive full credit for all academic work successfully completed at UCAV and they will be able to transfer these academic credits to any participating institution as long as there is prior agreement. It will be a matter for the home university to select students to participate in exchanges involving UCAV. The student should note that it is the Home University that officially recognizes their time of study abroad. It is the Home University, therefore, that indicates which subjects should be studied. Any decision concerning study must be submitted to the International Exchange Coordinator at the Home University.

Exchange students coming to UCAV should send, together with their Application Form, the Study Contract or Learning Agreement from the University of origin three months before their study program is due to start (June 30th for the Fall; October 30th for the Spring).

Students obtain their acceptance automatically
